  1. Horse Talk
    Well, life took an extremely unexpected turn today. I found out that there are a couple of yearlings that going to get sent to slaughter in the next day or two. No auction no other chances at finding a home, no nothing, just straight to slaughter. Well, I asked for more information and I...

    Soo....I did a thing.... A lady that boards at the same stable I do has 3 mares at her property that had foals. I went and saw said foals. I got my heart stolen by a little filly xD So, meet Melody. She's a quarter horse and in these pics when I first met her, she was only ten days old...

    Hello!! I just wanted to make a thread to pick some of your brains a little bit. (Somewhat irrelevant background info: When I was in high school, I used to buy cheap two year olds from local breeders and train them to sell to nice people. Most of these colts had been super well-handled since...

    Hey y'all!! I'm going to be starting my almost 3yr old Filly this summer! And I thought I'd see what tips y'all have? This will be my first time Colt starting! I'm super excited to do this with my wonderful trainer. What have you found to work for you when starting your young ones? What are...

    My grandma's pony (about 30 in tall) is rather lonely with being the only horse on the farm. A few days ago, I came across a post on FB of a mini filly for sale. She's only 5 months old and absolutely adorable. And now, I'm considering getting this little baby so that my grandma's pony can have...
  6. Horse Nutrition
    I just recently won a weanling solid pinto filly. As of right now, I am doing research on feed because the food she came on is too expensive for my family and they'd like to have her switched as soon as possible. Right now she is only 5 months old. (Late April baby). She came on hay cubes, red...

    I recently stumbled across this trainer and her method of working with horses which is something i haven't really seen before. It looks pretty interesting and I think it's the approach I may need to take with my mare Roxy since she has a similar personality to that show jumper in the video. I...
  8. Horse Breeds
    Hey everyone :) So my grandma had 2 ponies that she got roughly 6 years ago. The one was a rescue as she'd been very abused to the point she'd freak out if you picked up a whip or even just a stick despite standing a few feet away and not even directing your body towards her. She was also...

    So I have been blessed with a super sweet 6 month old filly that I've named Ren. I've only had this filly about 8 days now but she's honestly blowing my mind. Before I got her, she was only semi halter broke and was introduced to picking up her feet and that's it. I didn't do anything with her...

    Hey everyone! I just brought a nine month old anglo arab filly. I am new to training foals and would love some tips! What type of things should I be working on with her? She has had some basic handling such as having her feet picked up, been rugged, floated and stabled. Other than that she is a...

    I am trying to get my 2 year old TB filly to move for me and not getting any progress. She seems completely desensitized to the whip or any sort of pressure and will just stand there or fight with me. When I first began doing exercises with her she was responding accurately. Now when I hit the...
  12. Horse Conformation Critique
    Hi, I'm new here. What do you think this mare shows potential for? She's a 2 year old 97.7% foundation QH 17.6% Doc Bar. I personally can go into any discipline but what does she look like she'd be good for...
  13. Horse Conformation Critique
    Hello Everyone, It's been a while since I've been on here. Some of you may have remembered me posting about a stray horse that wandered onto our yard that I later bought at auction so she wouldn't go for meat and named her Faith because I was taking a giant leap of Faith that she wasn't crazy...

    We rescued a 2 year old filly in mid April. Mid to late June and into July we gave her SmartMare Harmony Pellets by Smart Pak because she seemed grouchy and uncomfortable. We just gave her the 2 months worth. We just now learned that the poor thing is pregnant!! She is just a baby herself...
  15. Horse Colors and Genetics
    Hi all.. I'm new to all the colour genetics of breeding horses but I'm searching for a Buckskin filly to buy and have come across an advertised buckskin filly.. But in all its photos it appears to have a white mane, but still slightly dark points and a dark tail. Will the mane darken in time or...
  16. Horse Colors and Genetics
    Hello! I am writing up a ad for my sweet filly (I rescued her, and I would love to keep her but can't), and I'm not sure if she is a bay marble appaloosa or a bay frost appaloosa. Thoughts?
  17. Horse Health
    Hello, this is my first post here! Today I woke to find that my 3 year cob hadn't touched her hay or water all night, I automatically found this to be odd, and throughout the day her unusual behavior continued. She spent most of her day standing around very still (but not sleeping), alert to...
  18. Horse Breeding
    I am a large horse owner and new to miniature horses (also new to stallions!). We rescued a 6 year old miniature stallion about a month ago and this weekend we are bringing home a miniature filly (6 months old). I have two separate but adjoining pasture/pens for these two while they get to...

    So, long story short, I adopted 4 orphaned foals from an auction. The smallest and weakest colt died a few nights after we brought him home, just when he started to get better(RIP, Tonto). Now two months later, the blue roan filly, Zuni, and a tiny chestnut colt, Chaco, are doing amazing. They...
  20. New to Horses
    Title says it all I purchased my first yearling. Her name is Teagan and she's an appaloosa. She's 14 months old and just adorable. I am not a first time horse owner I am a first time yearling owner though and I've leased mares but only owned geldings so she's the first "mare" I've owned. I do...
